happening in the bayview. and it's not as simple as you think when you talk about safe routes. our young people have to cross four or five [speaker not understood] going to school, another four or five [speaker not understood] getting back. and the san francisco county transportation authority purports to know everything. but in the last nine months we have bus routes, like the 44, that cannot even go to certain destinations. they just stop below the hill and our students and our youth [speaker not understood]. when people come to me, then i have to work with the community response network and i have to work with volunteers who escort
8:01am
our young people and our seniors. now, i would want those people who are having these meetings at the ymca to have these meetings at the bayview opera house or the [speaker not understood] facility -- >> thank you very much. and the [speaker not understood]. i'm going to put it in writing. thank you very much. >> thank you. is there any other member of the public who would like to seek? -- speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. madam clerk, if you can please call item number 5. >> item number 5, exercise the first one-year option of the legal services contract with nossman llp and increase the contract amount by $350,000, to a total amount not to exceed $1,310,000, for general legal counsel services and authorize the executive director to modify non-material contract terms and conditions. this is an action item. >> great, thank you. this is an item that came before our finance committee. i don't know if there are any comments or questions on this item before we take action. if we can have public comment. is there any member of the public who would like to speak
8:02am
on this item please come forward. seeing none, public comment is closed. the house has changed, so, if we can take a roll call on this item. [roll call] >> the item passes. >> the item passes. if you can call item 6, please. >> appoint winston parsons to the geary corridor bus rapid transit citizens advisory committee. this is an action item. >> this is an item that came before the plans and programs committee. unless there are any comments or questions, why don't we open it up to public comment. any member of the public who would like to speak on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, unless there's any objection, can we take this same house same call? same house, same call. and we want to thank winston parsons for his service to the city and county of san francisco.
8:03am
can you please call item 7. >> item number 7, allocate $3 million in proposition k funds, with conditions, to the peninsula corridor joint powers board for implementation of the communications-based overlay signal system project, subject to the attached fiscal year cash flow distribution schedule; amend the strategic plan; and commit to allocate $6,390,000 in fiscal year 2013/14 and $6,470,000 in fiscal year 2014/15 prop k funds to the cboss project. this is an action item. >> this is again another item that came before the plans and programs committee. turn it over to our executive director. >> yes, mr. chairman, thank you. commissioners, there is another handout that is on your desks which has a title of agenda item 7. that is simply for your information since this item is a very important allocation for the division of caltrain.
8:04am
we had a discussion on conditions and oversight related conditions at the boards and programs committee. and i just wanted to report that as a result of that very important discussion i think there was essentially a committee formed by project sponsors that will now do joint oversight of the work of the joint powers board in pursuing this electric ifcation project. the bottom line is all project sponsors will receive the technical and project status reports * including the cost and budget reports that jpv will be submitting to the federal transit administration and there will be periodic meetings to review the problems
8:05am
of the project and to request concurrence from -- review and concurrence from all of the project sponsors. so, this is really i think a win for the project, but also for the region because the transportation commission will be involved in that in addition to the transportation authorities of san mateo, santa clara and san francisco counties. we are essentially working from the same sheet. i think this is a good model for how these multi-county projects not just get if you -- funded, but how the oversight gets done. fundamental here is it is the same information that will be provided to everyone. * so, that's just a clarification on the conditions that are in the board resolution, the project -- the allocation was recommended unanimously by the plans and programs committee. >> thank you, mr. moskovich. unless there are any comments or questions, why don't we open it up to public comment. any member of the public would
8:06am
like to speak on item 7, please come forward. good morning, thank you for the opportunity. my name is roland [speaker not understood], i'm from san jose. i am one of the strongest supporters of the caltrain modernization program. i [speaker not understood] it extensive the last year. i am really pleased by the report from the executive director with the recent developments because frankly there have been questions about how this project has been moving in the last year. i'll give you some examples. highlights for the last year ask a 1-1/2 million dollars bond, get the accurate gps coordinates of the equipment, and $6 million in program management. now, there are many amounts of technical questions that have to be answered urgently because it directly impacts the capacity of the line down the peninsula affecting all the cities because currently the plan is to put passing track.
8:07am
we frankly are not required if you have a modern signalling system. in closing, what you have in front of you is an application for signaling system. it's got nothing to do with electrification which is in prop k.

waiting for it. i am mr. yep and lived in san francisco for 50 plus years. this is a neighborhood i am familiar with especially at night and i am questioning since the city is on record for supporting small businesses why we're still issuing new beer and wine licenses? if i remember correct leeann earlier discussions here. >> >> at city hall there was going to be emphasis on trying to slow down the spread of these licenses, so if we're serious about supporting small businesses, especially in this area, maybe not issue it and this way give existing businesses, and also i think in the future when we have these liquor license statements i would also like to hear from
8:15am
the district supervisor in the area where the license is being considered so this way we have some sort of district input from city government rather than just the police and the planning department, so i think if we're going to support small business in san francisco we should try to limit new issuances of beer and wine licenses so this way the existing businesses could -- in a certain sense flourish, and it also sends a message to the potential crime breakers that they don't have another place to hang out. thank you. >> thank you. any other members of the public? >> excuse me for being late. >> it's okay. come up. are you the applicant? >> yeah, i represent -- [inaudible] >> just a quick question. are you comfortable with all the recommendations made by the police department?

8:25am
committee there is nothing going on in san francisco except liquor licenses and we all know that is definitely not true. i would like to make a recommendation on two subject matters which in my opinion the city and county of san francisco has not done enough. number one, the obvious one, child pornography. the federal government has been cracking down on california but i don't see too much activity in san francisco and number two, the obvious one, which most people don't want to talk about is the sex slave trade. san francisco is one of the cities along the main routes in the west coast, so i would like to see a discussion because in my opinion it does operate in a certain sense within san francisco, so i think it falls within city operations, and i think having three liquor licenses on a monday morning -- i don't think if the taxpayers are getting
8:26am
our monies worth, but i want to say one thing for sure. i would like to thank supervisor olague for her independence. thank you. >> thank you. any further comment? public comment is closed. can we send this forward with recommendations? that will be the order. mr. clerk, anymore items before the committee? >> that concludes the agenda. >> thank you very much. we are adjourned.
8:27am
>> good afternoon. this is our disaster council meeting of october 26. thank you all for coming. welcome to our emergency operations center. as you know we generally meet at city hall but today is a very special day that you will learn about as we unfold our agenda and thank you again for coming. i'm going to turn the table over to mayor lee who is going to give some opening remarks. >> thank you. good afternoon everyone and welcome to our turk street emergency operations center. first of all i want to thank everybody. anybody wearing orange gets a special treat in my eyes today. anyway we're still celebrating and i never knew that wearing orange and the giants and sports will be so closely connected to what we do in emergency management but it is and it is for good reason because our city's
8:28am
success is really dependent upon inviting thousands more people here to enjoy our resources here in the city, to tax us a little bit on it, but this is what we do as a great international city. all of you have a very distinct role in all of this and it's my pleasure to begin telling you how proud i am and the months of september and particularly october have all been full of great events, and numerous events, and sometimes on schedules that while we had mentally took note they would be on the similar weekends, we were of course needing to really communicate with each other, and make sure we did all the things in the background that no one ever sees and talks to each other to make sure things happen smoothly, and i want to give big kudos to ed risin and all the
8:29am
others in transportation and advising people to take public transportation and emphasize that in all of our major international and worldwide and world seize of events that happened in the city. >> >> whether it's america's cup or fleet week or some incredible music on the bluegrass side of the city as well as just neighborhood events that we continue to invite we shined very well because we did do the right emphasis and we encouraged all of the public safety departments to work well ahead of this, and i want to thank them for constantly keeping me and many of you on the sf alert program and texting us and making sure we were assured that the critical departments were working together just in case and it's always about just in case. right herald? the red cross knows this more than
